those statements more directly? >> there's no question he's going to have to do that. jay carney is going to brief in a few minutes. he's going to get hammered with these questions. this is a case the white house did not prepare the american people for what their vision of the law was going to be and now that it is colliding with the poor rollout of the nonfunctional website, this entire thing is looking like a mess and they have to fix it. if they can't fix it, we're not going to have the law. >> john harwood, thanks very much. >>> we have had one person at cnbc today dedicated to getting a comment or a representative from the white house to come on and talk about obama care. he sent three e-mails and three calls and the white house got back to us about 20 minutes ago saying that no one was availablep for our air time. we should note over the past three weeks the white house has approached us twice about having senior communications adviser david see miss on "power lunch" to talk about obama care and we did have him on both of those times. bertha coombs back with us. how is this
